WORCESTER Warriors’ loosehead prop Lewis Holsey returns to the England Under-20s squad for their penultimate match in the delayed Six Nations against hosts Wales at Cardiff Arms Park on Wednesday (kick-off 8pm).

Holsey started in England’s tournament opener against France but suffered a hamstring injury and was ruled out of the victories over Scotland and Ireland.

Having regained fitness, Holsey returns to the matchday squad against Wales as one of the 11 replacements permitted for the tournament.

Holsey’s Three Pears Warriors Academy team-mate Fin Smith will again start for England, having been one of the key players in the tournament so far.

The young fly-half has started all three games for England in the competition and has amassed 27 points in total.

England will be going for the Triple Crown when they face the Welsh tonight and can take a step closer to winning the tournament.

Head coach Alan Dickens has made three changes to the starting XV that beat Ireland last time out with Orlando Bailey returning at full-back, Tom Roebuck making his first start of this Six Nations on the wing and loosehead prop Fin Baxter called up for his debut.

“Last week we had a hugely physical match and so we’ve made sure we’ve recovered well since then,” Dickens said.

“I was really pleased with the character and effort from the team and seeing another improvement in our performance.

“I’m looking for the players to build on that again heading into this game.

“We know Wales v England is always a special match in the Six Nations and we are expecting another strong challenge from a team on home turf.

“I’ve made a few more changes to our starting line up which is reflective of the competition for places among the squad.

“Tom Roebuck made a very positive impact from the bench against Ireland so I want to see what he can do starting the game.

“I’ve also been impressed with Fin Baxter who has been training with us this past week and it will be great to see him win his first Under-20s cap on Wednesday night.

“The hard work and the effort the players have put in so far through this Six Nations competition and during the season as a whole has been outstanding and we will continue to push that in this game.”
